Re: Where might there be thin pencil zinc(s)? M25xp

Re: Easy way to add temperature alarm?

Some fascinating and diverse answers here. More than one way to skin a cat. I have also found the Aqualarm #212 Engine Overheat Detector which bolts somewhere on the block. Thanks all.

Re: Mississippi Barrier Islands

Thank you both for this good information. I'll watch the wind forecast and decide. Since low tide is at night, Smuggler's might offer more protection than I anticipated. I will have more crew than...
